[Discussion] On Television, Cinema and Race

Thread for race issues in media.

Birth Of a Nation
This movie isn't do so good. I think this is because black people are tired of slave type movies, white people don't want the white guilt, and everybody else is turned off by the rape case. I mean this in general. This is just a perfect storm for the downfall of the movie.

Surviving Compton
Straight out of compton left out the ladies. This lifetime show means to correct that. I believe all of the production was done by women.

Mulan live.
All Chinese cast. Maybe the dumb choices of Gods of Egypt are over.

What a way to f*ck up a paycheck. I hope the RW victimhood/grievance carousel pays well, I'm sure she'll have a role in the movie version of Ben Shapiro's new book.

The main villains are a black preacher who teams up with a crack dealing BLM type guy to trick a white cop into killing an unarmed black kid to start riots, and the president who is from Chicago and wants to cut military spending and spend more on social welfare, and an evil Imam

Highlight of the novel is when on orders from the crack dealing BLM guy the president from Chicago drone strikes the white cop after the cop has been acquitted

I swear to God, the people who have been complaining the loudest about snowflakes the most easily triggered, softer than wet toilet paper schmucks on God's Green Earth.

It’s not new, it came out 4 or 5 years ago. Behind the Bastards has been doing chapter-by-chapter readings from it whenever Robert Evans’ schedule gets busy and they need a filler episode.

It is atrocious, not just the themes and plot but also how it’s written. It is super evident that Shapiro didn’t let an editor anywhere near the book.

Gina Carano, Ben Shapiro Team Up for Film After ‘Mandalorian’ Firing

It'll be terrible, and it'll do gangbusters, I guarantee it.

Maybe afterwards she can team up with Kevin Sorbo for the next God's Not Dead sequel

God’s Not Left Behind on Battlefield Earth

What if god was one us. Just a stranger on a bus. Trying to find his way home.

I expect the WWE will have her back given its fan base.

from the linked article wrote:

There are no plans to release Carano and Shapiro’s films anywhere beyond The Daily Wire.

So no, no it won't do gangbusters.

“Hollywood cancelled Gina Carano for being conservative. That’s bullsh*t. So we’re fighting back,” Shapiro tweeted on Friday. “Become a DW member today with promo code GINA for 25% off, and join the cultural resistance.”

Unsurprisingly, it's a grift.

Well yeah, it's Ben Shapiro.

What do I get if I use code WAP at checkout?

Coupon for a free gynecologist visit, carton of cranberry juice and a selection of single-serving lube sachets.

So, anything good about TV and race going on tonight?

As I enjoy saying, "LOT going on there."

(As much of a series of 2000 lb bombshells as that was, I hope it doesn't completely overshadow the absolutely damning episode of Allen v. Farrow that aired last night as well.)

I guess you're talking about Oprah talking with Meghan Markle & spouse?

You guys weren't saying, so I had to research, finally resorting to a visit to Black Twitter.

Do I ever regret a visit to Black Twitter? No, I do not, because there's always something special as an extra surprise:

Yes, Black Twitter has done quite a bit with that this weekend. I think it's even funnier because Paul Bettany is probably one of the whitest people on earth, so I'd pay good money to see his face when someone tells him about this.

Let's just call it now:

Piers Morgan, after enduring a unimaginable 70 seconds of discourse over his statements about Meghan Markle, stormed off set at Good Morning Britain and announced this afternoon he was leaving the show entirely.

He will 10,000,000% appear somewhere, likely on FOX News, to decry how he has been "silenced and canceled" by the "woke mob."

I feel like there's some sort of wintery term to describe that behavior

I dunno, perhaps a neologism relating to part of a firearm?

Wait, soulless, dead-eyed motherf*ckers are only a winter thing?

I just googled "Piers Morgan storms off", and let's just say this wasn't the first time. It's all part of the racist, sexist, hollow charade. He's nothing but a wet fart: horrible yet extremely hard to ignore.

How does he get jobs? He's completely useless.

Utility isn't a selling point to the right. c.f. Ben Shapiro.

He's much more than that and with a very large audience. We can't just wait for all of them to succumb to cancer.

Criticism on Cancel Culture be damned, this rhetoric does not deserve a platform.

I just found out that Piers Morgan and Meghan Markle apparently had drinks at the party where she later met Prince Harry. Then Piers complained that she "ghosted" him, as if she's obligated to him for anything. Knowing this, this whole thing seems to come from bitter jealously that nothing happened between the two of them.

Mega-cringe.

Right on schedule.

It’s quite an accomplishment to make me miss Bill O’Reilly.

I hate that I'm right, but that one was as easy as predicting that it'll be hot in Doha tomorrow.

Old heavyset dude loses out on pretty girl to charming, handsome, actual honest-to-god prince, gets pissy about it, and then gets called out for being hypocritical.

Of course the conservatives are championing his cause. Of course. How could it be any other way?

Yeah, but it will be a dry heat.

Piers Morgan has always seemed like the biggest sort of asshole, one who has always failed upward. Not shocking that he can't handle criticism.
